NAME

       Mail::Transport::Sendmail - transmit messages using external Sendmail
       program

INHERITANCE

        Mail::Transport::Sendmail
          is a Mail::Transport::Send
          is a Mail::Transport
          is a Mail::Reporter

SYNOPSIS

        my $sender = Mail::Transport::Sendmail->new(...);
        $sender->send($message);

DESCRIPTION

       Implements mail transport using the external 'Sendmail' program.  When
       instantiated, the mailer will look for the binary in specific system
       directories, and the first version found is taken.

       Some people use Postfix as MTA.  Postfix can be installed as
       replacement for Sendmail: is provides a program with the same name and
       options.  So, this module supports postfix as well.

           port => INTEGER
           proxy => PATH
           retry => NUMBER|undef
           sendmail_options => ARRAY
             Add to the command-line of the started sendmail MTU a list of
             separate words.  So say " [ '-f', $file ] " and not " [ "-f
             $file" ] ", because the latter will be taken by sendmail as one
             word only.

DIAGNOSTICS

       Error: Errors when closing sendmail mailer $program: $!
           The was no problem starting the sendmail mail transfer agent, but
           for some specific reason the message could not be handled
           correctly.

       Warning: Message has no destination
           It was not possible to figure-out where the message is intended to
           go to.

       Error: Package $package does not implement $method.
           Fatal error: the specific package (or one of its superclasses) does
           not implement this method where it should. This message means that
           some other related classes do implement this method however the
           class at hand does not.  Probably you should investigate this and
           probably inform the author of the package.

       Warning: Resent group does not specify a destination
           The message which is sent is the result of a bounce (for instance
           created with Mail::Message::bounce()), and therefore starts with a
           "Received" header field.  With the "bounce", the new destination(s)
           of the message are given, which should be included as "Resent-To",
           "Resent-Cc", and "Resent-Bcc".

           The "To", "Cc", and "Bcc" header information is only used if no
           "Received" was found.  That seems to be the best explanation of the
           RFC.

           As alternative, you may also specify the "to" option to some of the
           senders (for instance Mail::Transport::SMTP::send(to) to overrule
           any information found in the message itself about the destination.
